When All This Is Over
April 17, 2021 - May 17, 2021
When All This Is Over is a collection of works on paper and panel created since the beginning of the pandemic. Living and working in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Chris Stokes saw the neighborhood’s storefronts and commercial buildings quickly transform as Covid, political unrest, and urban flight took hold. Being an artist and architect, he contemplated what the landscape might look like in the future, if people and society did not return. He also envisioned a sense of optimism if they did.
In addition to his solo exhibition, Stokes will be unveiling his design for Luna Rienne Gallery’s new parklet, for which crowd funding campaign will soon launch.

Brighter Days looks forward to a future of hope, love, and peace as the world recovers from a year of intensity with the global pandemic, racial injustice, political unrest, and wildfires throughout California. Ursula Xanthe Young began producing the body of work in the summer, when she typically would be painting murals outdoors at music and art festivals but was sheltered in place. Instead of focusing on negative thoughts and disappointment, she found inspiration in optimism for the future and uplifting music, from which many of the painting titles come.

The collection of paintings, drawings, and limited edition prints presents colorful designs in visual loops that illuminate the cyclical nature of desire. Loucheur’s vibrant botanical patterns interplay with images of alcohol, tobacco and THC to present a tension between timeless beauty and temporal intoxication.
